Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-11-096
Budget: 03/01/12 - 02/28/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) is the weakest link in global TB control and drug resistance complicates the selection of an appropriate treatment course. The most widely used diagnostic test, sputum smear microscopy, is cumbersome, insensitive, involves multiple patient visits and cannot detect multi drug or ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/20/09 - 08/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While the United States food supply is among the safest in the world it is vulnerable to terrorist attacks as well as occasional accidental contamination from inadequate sanitation at packing and manufacturing facilities;e.g. the recent E. coli contamination of pre-washed bagged spinach. The research to be co...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/01/09 - 08/31/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) is a major weak link in global TB control. Drug resistant TB compounds diagnosis and treatment challenges. The most widely used diagnostic test. Sputum smear microscopy, cannot detect multi drug or extensively drug resistant TB (MDR/XDR-TB) and sputum culture is costly, and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-134
Budget: 07/01/09 - 11/30/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) is the major weak link in global TB control. Drug resistant TB compounds diagnosis and treatment challenges. The most widely used diagnostic test, sputum smear microscopy, is cumbersome, insensitive, involves multiple patient visits and cannot detect multi drug or extensivel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-34
Budget: 07/22/08 - 06/30/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) is the major weak link in global TB control. Drug resistant TB compounds diagnosis and treatment challenges.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-20
Budget: 07/01/08 - 06/30/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With nearly one-third of the world's population (2 billion people) infected, tuberculosis (TB) is a major problem for global public health. The WHO estimates that each year 12 million people progress to active TB and 2 million of these people will die (WHO50/50, 2002). The current diagnosis for TB is cumberso...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB05.2-001-2005
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The proposed research is to develop the prototype of a handheld first responder bioterrorism agent (BA) detection system that is threat level responsive, simple, stable and rapid for analyzing suspicious powders or aerosols for the presence of nucleic acid (NA) from BAs. Investigen¿s ¿smartDNA¿ system uses peptide nucleic acid probedye cocktails...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/06 - 11/30/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed research is to determine the feasibility of developing a novel, simple, rapid method of detecting the nucleic acid (NA) from Mycobacterium tuberculosis cell in sputum, for detection of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). This method would be based on Investigen's novel and elegant "smartDNA" technology....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB05.2-001-2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The proposed research is to determine feasibility of developing a stable, simple, rapid method of detecting the nucleic acid (NA) from bioterrorism agents. This method would be based on Investigen?s novel and elegant ?smartDNA? technology. This system utilizes a peptide nucleic acid probe cocktail to produce a rapid color change when probes hybr...
